Clinical Services – Social Work

What is Social Work?

Social Workers are qualified health professionals who focus on maintaining and enhancing quality of life to assist people, their families and communities.

Social Workers are focused on person-centred support and work alongside people to achieve their needs, goals and aspirations.

Some of the work undertaken by a Social Worker includes individual planning, counselling, coordination of supports and case management, advocacy and therapeutic interventions.
